Workforce Success Story Submitted By:
Paxen Learning Corporation


Meet Beatrice

Workforce Challenge

Beatrice came to Paxen Learning Corporation in October, 2010, in need of skills development and job search assistance. She needed to increase her workforce readiness skills; Paxen recommended its Forward March Program.

Workforce Solution

The Forward March program is a workforce readiness training program funded by ARRA. It provides participants with fundamental, real world skills such as computer literacy and critical thinking to help them enter the job market. Beatrice completed the program and was excited to begin working; however, she had no knowledge of the job search process.

Paxen Learning Corporation, through its partnership with Wal-Mart Corporation, helped Beatrice obtain a job at a local Wal-Mart store just prior to the busy holiday season. She was thankful for the opportunity to begin earning money for her family before year's end.

Outcomes & Benefits

Beatrice has become a model employee and Wal-Mart is proud to have her employed with their organization. She is able to see all of the opportunities that are before her in such a wide-reaching organization. Beatrice stated, "This is the best thing that has happened to me in a long time!" Congratulations, Beatrice!
